We didn't have any issues with our room, staff, check-in, check-out, etc..... Cookies in the evenings (Sun-TH) There is a lot of variety for breakfast and though it's not a restaurant, the breakfast is impressive.... More

Stayed 2 days here and everything was perfect. Clean rooms, wonderful views, great breakfast and outstanding staff. Our check in hostess Aaliyah set the tone reflecting an inn that truly cares for their guest. She and all staff were very warm and welcoming. This was a perfect stay for visits to Bryson City, Fontana Lake, Cherokee and Dillsboro. The patio... More

Staying at Best Western is always a pleasant experience. The rooms are always clean and comfortable, the towels soft, the hot breakfast good and the employees pleasant. At Dillsboro, NC, the Tuckaseigee River flows just behind the breakfast room, adding to the pleasantness.

Really enjoyed our stay. The beds were clean and comfortable, the shower was the right pressure and the breakfast was hot with a good variety of items. Probably one of the best breakfasts out there. The staff was helpful and friendly everyday we were there.

Staff at front desk was great, breakfast was great, views from hotel were also wonderful. We went on the Tuckasagee River and had a great time as well. This is the 2nd time we have been to this property and it had been updated and we would come back again as well.

Beautiful riverfront views but make sure you ASK for riverfront or you'll be looking at the parking lot - location is otherwise a bit remote - have to drive to wherever your heart sends you. Nothing within walking distance. The hotel itself is well maintained, friendly staff, good breakfast fare in the AM. Common amenities avail... indoor pool, gym, hot... More

My daughter and I had a wonderful stay. This hotel is in the middle of many activities. Had a great time shopping at the shops in Dillsboro. Loved the front staff, they were very helpful with recommendations for restaurants and shopping.

So was the cleaning lady when I asked for an extra pen, she was extremely... More
